Table 4 Associations between clinical parameters and Dengue Score groups

From: Dengue score as a diagnostic predictor for pleural effusion and/or ascites: external validation and clinical application

  Dengue Score ≤ 1 Dengue Score = 2 Dengue Score ≥ 3
Hemoconcentration, n (%)
  ≤ 20% 83 (100) 35 (92.1)a 54 (62.8)a, b
  > 20% 0 (0) 3 (7.9) 32 (37.2)
Severe thrombocytopenia, n (%)
 ≥10,000/μL 83 (100) 35 (92.1)a 64 (74.4)a, b
  < 10,000/μL 0 (0) 3 (7.9) 22 (25.6)
Severe dengue, n (%)
 Negative 83 (100) 36 (94.7) 69 (80.2)a, b
 Positive 0 (0) 2 (5.3) 17 (19.8)
Length of stay, n (%)
  ≤ 5 days 62 (74.7) 18 (47.4)a 21 (24.4)a, b
  > 5 days 21 (25.3) 20 (52.6) 65 (75.6)
  1. Data are presented as number of patients (%) for each group. Chi-square tests were used to assess associations between findings for two groups. a a significant association relative to the Dengue Score ≤ 1 group; b a significant association relative to the Dengue Score = 2 group (p < 0.05)
